Overall Satisfaction with PaperTrail

Our application logs and server system logs are sent to Papertrail. We use various libraries for sending logs and alerts from applications. Servers are all sending logs via rsyslog.
  • Makes keeping similar types of logs together. ie: app vs server
  • Searching logs is extremely easy. Finding what you're looking for is extremely easy.
  • Setting up new applications or servers is extremely simple as well.
  • I'd like to see their free tier offer a longer period for retaining logs.
  • Some UI updates would be good, it hasn't changed visually since I started using it 5 years ago.
  • Getting alerts on certain events is particularly helpful and has saved me lots of time searching.
I only used Logz.io for a very brief time. It seemed a bit more difficult to setup than Papertrail.
If you've got lots of logs to manage, you'll enjoy Papertrail and find it quite useful. It's great for searching logs too, particularly helpful when doing an incident response to potential security breaches.
